Gordon Hydro Power Station

Water from the Gordon River Dam drops 183m underground into its power station, where three turbines of 144 MW generates up to 432 MW of power, covering about 13% of the electricity demand of Tasmania. The first two turbines were commissioned in 1978; the third was commissioned a decade later in 1988.

The power station is fuelled by water from Lake Gordon. Water from Lake Pedder is also drawn into Lake Gordon through the McPartlans Pass Canal. The combination of Lake Gordon and Lake Pedder is not only the largest storage in Hydro Tasmania’s system but the largest storage of water in Australia.
